Sensei (Bob) VanSambeek
Mr. VanSambeek (referred to as Mr. Bob) earned his Black Belt in January 2013. His areas of special interest and expertise include ne waza (ground skills), nitan bo (double sticks) and Internal Body Mechanics. He provides regular assistance to Sensei Combo with many of the scheduled youth and adult classes. He will often be seen with a big smile on his face warming up the students or leading several groups of practitioners through their required material. Mr. Bob played a huge role in helping build our wonderful spring based flooring system in the dojo and has helped to build 3 other floors for our Shoshin Dojo in AZ, NC and ID. He has two wonderful children, Hannah and Jack, who also have been long-time members of the dojo.
